Brian Morrison is a Wim-Hof trained breathing practitioner that has recently helped me change my outlook on the mind and body. I thought it’d be a great idea to get to know more about Brian’s story and what led him down this path.
Brian runs workshops that introduce us to a side of ourselves we may have otherwise not discovered. He offers education on cold exposure and Wim Hof’s breathing techniques.
